 Each student's GSL Education Map (GSL eMap) is determined through a multifaceted assessment process that begins when the student is enrolled at GSL.  This process will provide information about the student's learning style, the student's interests, and accommodations the student may need to succeed.  The GSL eMap will personalize each students educational journey and help GSL provide the most successful experience for each individual student.
